COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Unfiltered; Keg & Bottle: Filtered. Regularly available.
An extremely clean-drinking pale golden ale with a strong floral aroma and elderflower notes from the Cascade hops. This beer is full-bodied and full-flavoured yet gentle enough to make it a favourite session beer.

A classic. Remarkable depth of flavour for such a low gravity beer. Nice malt and hop balance start leading to an extended hop finish.

Ktwse (3169) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2016
Pours clear golden with low white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine. Taste is light pine bitter with a soft sweetness before a lingering bitter finish. Light , smooth body with soft carbonation.

theprof (269) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2016
Tap. Aroma of citrus fruits and floral hops. Pours golden with white lace top. Tastes of tangerine mixed in flour with a bitter tang. The lingering bitterness belies the thin body and high carbonation. Gassy. And missing something.

Solid drinkable beer with a creamy aroma. Obviously wateriness is present to a certain extent but the yeasty and malty flavours do not compensate for this

bartzluke (484) - Oklahoma, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Pint from cask into a mug in London. Light, clear, yellow, moderate white head. Dry, flat, bitter, herbal, a hint of fruitiness. The taste is pleasant, but the body lacks a bit.

Erzengel (6723) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
On cask. Smooth malty and round beginning. Nice floral fresh piney hops on a malty Ale-body. Not much bitterness, round and fresh. Easy to drink with a mild ale-bitter finish!

Holmen1 (4121) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2015
Håndpumpet på King’s Arms (Waterloo), før konsert i Festival Hall: klar, lys gylden med ok skum. Frisk og godt humlet med preg av citrus, blomster og appelsinmarmelade. Litt gress i avslutningen. En av de bedre golden ales.

Cask. Klar orange, medelstort vitt skum som inte är långvarigt. Dofter av citrus, persika och tall. Smakinslag citrus, malt, grapefrukt och karamell. Härligt fruktig avslutning med en lättare beska.
